Summer Dress Suggestions

Summertime is the season when you can feel comfortable showing a bit more skin. When it comes to dresses, there are many choices available to you. The kind of dresses you choose to wear this summer will depend on where you are headed and your individual style. Here are some tips to look your best this summer and beat the heat at the same time!

Summer Party Dresses

If you're going to a party, then try something flirty and fun. Why not try a knee-length dress in a silk or satin fabric with a little movement and flounce in the skirt? For something a little sexier, go with a minidress in a form fitting fabric that features a bit of stretch. In summer, pantyhose are optional, especially when it comes to party wear. If your legs are nice and bronzed, then simply mist with dry oil or try one of the new moisturizers that feature fine shimmer. For quick summer color, use a sunless tanning product. Just be sure to shave and exfoliate first to avoid dark patches.

Summer Dresses for Work

For work, try a skirt and blazer in a light summery fabric with a silk chemise or shell underneath. Depending on your office dress code, you may or may not want to wear pantyhose. Heels are always a good choice for work, while sandals should be avoided in a traditional office environment. For your work dresses and suits, try light summery colors like white, beige, and pale pastels.

Formal Dresses for Summer

Going to a formal event? Why not go for a long sheath dress in a vibrant, warm color like red? With such an eye-catching shade, keep jewelry to a minimum and makeup soft and natural. Or, try a feminine and flirty gown in a summery color like butter yellow or pale pink. Tulle, silk, satin and lace are all popular fabrics for formal summer dresses.

Casual Summer Dresses

For a feminine, casual look, try a white cotton dress accentuated with eyelet. Or, go with a pretty floral pattern and comfortable sandals. Sundresses are flexible and can carry you through your day in style and comfort. For a flirty retro look, go with a black or red sundress adorned with small white polka dots.

Summer is a time when you can be adventurous with your fashion choices. Flaunt your femininity this summer one of the cute dresses adorning the racks in today's boutiques and stores. You'll feel confident, cool and comfortable -- and isn't that what summer is all about?
